Sporting Lisbon v CHELSEA: Preview

Venue: Estádio José Alvalade Date: Tuesday, September 30, 2014 Kick-off: 19.45 BST. It’s a trip back to his home country tonight for Jose Mourinho as Chelsea face Sporting Lisbon in the Champions League. Mourinho may have started out at the club as Robson’s interpreter but there’ll be little room for sentimentality after a disappointing draw [...]

CHELSEA v Aston Villa: Preview

Venue: Stamford Bridge Date: Saturday, 27 September Kick-off: 15:00 GMT Last week, we lost our 100% winning start but remain unbeaten going into this afternoon’s game at home to a Villa side who’s own unbeaten run was ended against Arsenal last week in three minutes of madness. To be fair to Villa, they were hit [...]

Man City 1-1 CHELSEA: Not Bad For A Small Team

Possibly at the start of the game but definitely at half-time we’d have taken a draw. By the time Zabaleta was rightly sent off in the second half though, you’d have to think the game was ours for the taking. Any disappointment with a point away against the current Premier League champions isn’t spoilt brat [...]

Man City v CHELSEA: Preview

Venue: Etihad Stadium Date: Sunday, 21 September Kick-off: 16:00 After a midweek draw in the Champions League against Schalke, this afternoon sees us up against the defending Premier League champions at the Etihad. City come into the game five points behind us after taking only one point from the last two league games and they [...]

CHELSEA 1-1 Schalke: In a Nutshell

I did say in the match preview, I don’t like going into games with excessive confidence – and last night’s result is the reason why. Complacent Street is never a comfortable place to be and yet, after going a goal up, that’s exactly where Chelsea appeared to take a stroll. Couple that with a few [...]

CHELSEA v Schalke: Champions League Preview

Venue: Stamford Bridge Date: Wednesday 17 September Kick-off: 19:45 Here we go then, our first Champions League game of the season sees us at home to Schalke. We’re no strangers to the German side of course, having played them a few times now and most recently beating them 3-0 twice in last season’s campaign. This [...]

Terry & Costa Cut From the Same Cloth?

Not wanting to turn the blog into a Costa love-fest too early in the season but what a ridiculously good buy he’s looking to be. So far this season, we’ve had 7 goals in four games, so there’s no doubt we’ve got ourselves a striker. It’s not just the goals though, or the fact we [...]

CHELSEA v Swansea: Preview

Venue: Stamford Bridge Date: Saturday, 13 September Kick-off: 15:00 GMT Thank the good Lord this afternoon sees us back to the normality of the Premier League again and for us, it’s a top of the table clash at home to Swansea. Ok, so realistically we’ve only played three games apiece so far but there’s still [...]

Everton v CHELSEA: Preview

Venue: Goodison Park Date: Saturday, 30 August Kick-off: 17:30 Today’s late game sees us travel to Goodison Park for a game against an Everton side without a win so far. Not that The Toffees have been particularly poor at the start of this season although their defence might have been guilty of a little jet-lag [...]

CHELSEA v Leicester: Preview

Venue: Stamford Bridge Date: Saturday, 23 August Kick-off: 15:00 GMT Monday night saw a really impressive start to the season from Chelsea, with the sort of football mere words don’t really do justice. The fact that Arsenal’s response to Fabregas’ performance was to get bent out of shape, sums up the bargain we’ve bagged with [...]
